Earlier this year, Electronic Arts started a new program called ‘On The House’ on their Origin platform. Every once in a while EA announces that a certain game is on the house, which basically means that you can download it for free and it’s yours to keep. This time around, you can grab the highly acclaimed Dragon Age Origins at no cost whatsoever and in the process, prepare for the launch of Dragon Age Inquisition. This offer doesn’t really have any downsides per say, although there are a few things that need to be mentioned.
First off, Dragon Age Origins won’t stay ‘On The House’ forever so you better grab it now just to be on the safe side. You can do so at this page. Also, you will need an Origin account in order to be able to download and play the game. Aside from that, there’s not a whole lot to talk about, just download it and it’s your forever. While you’re there, you can also get Bejeweled 3 for free, the other title that’s currently ‘On The House’. Origin features another program that also let’s you play games for free, but only for a limited time. This program goes by the name of ‘Game Time’ and currently features Titanfall and Kingdoms of Amalur. You can play both of them for free for 48 hours before deciding if you want to reach for your wallet and purchase them. As for Dragon Age Origins, you’re likely already familiar with this title, but just in case you’re not, you can find the game’s description further down.
